Josephine Baker Fabulousness

Josephine: The Dazzling Life Of Josephine Baker ($12.95) Amazon 
By Patricia Hruby Powell & Christian Robinson

Dazzling life indeed. I don't care that this book is for kids 7-10 years, I want it anyway. I also want a long yellow dress and a leopard. 

"In exuberant verse and stirring pictures, Patricia Hruby Powell and Christian Robinson create an extraordinary portrait of the passionate performer and civil rights advocate Josephine Baker, the woman who worked her way from the slums of St. Louis to the grandest stages in the world. Meticulously researched by both author and artist, Josephine's powerful story of struggle and triumph is an inspiration and a spectacle, just like the legend herself." - Amazon
